I heard this on the radio yesterday but this is the first I've seen it. Pretty cool.
An expansion of the thoughts in my Ban Bossy post on Monday, expanded really well (by someone else...)
I'm a big supporter of girls-- I AM a girl-- but I don't know about this 'bossy' thing. There's a difference between 'confident' and 'strong' and 'leadership', and 'bossy'. You can take a leadership role, or assert yourself, without being BOSSY. Maybe it's just semantics, and since I know the difference, I'm not bothered by it-?
I kind of think this is something that parents and teachers and coaches need to be taught, not kids. I would never want anyone to tell either of my sons (esp not the previously shy, quiet one) to stop being bossy if all he was doing was trying to lead a group project or organize a game of recess basketball, but I am fine with someone telling him to tone it down if he's being too aggressive, or not letting others be heard.
Am I off the mark because I think what's good for the girls is also good for the boys? Is it ok to tell boys not to be so bossy?
I love this SO much. SO SO much!
Hilarious. I had the same shaped glasses and the same bangs (well, I tried for those bangs).
I recently came across GoldieBlox and I think the concept it pretty cool!
Look for the products online, or at your local Toys ''R'' Us. The one pictured here is Goldie Blox and the Spinning Machine, $29.99.
(This is not a solicited review or endorsement, I just think they're cool!)
It's the international day of the girl! Who rules the world? GIRLS!
I started reading this list thinking I was guilt of so many of these, but it's really only the first 3rd of the list. I'm pretty guilty of 1-7, but don't do any of the others (except 19). You? (you don't have to confess here, since it's not about comparison, just food for thought.)
This is SO interesting to me.
